There's no doubt in my mind that I am a musical learner.  I cannot stand silence.  It is distracting and becomes the loudest, most annoying noise I can hear.  Isn't silence supposed to be silent?

For as long as I can remember, I've always loved movie soundtrac...

Did anyone else love the movie, Mulan?  It was one of my favorites because I was a bit of a tomboy, and I loved that the girl not only saved her family, but she saved her country as well.  One of my favorite lines is at the end of the movie when the emperor tells Li Sh...

As Easter approaches, I've been going through the Gospels to look at Jesus' life.  As I delved into stories about his miracles, one came to my attention.  I've always loved this particular miracle, for a few reasons.

I'm in a place where I have so many ideas that are already well developed and barely any time to write...for now.  

First, I've got the first seven chapters of a brand new historical fiction put on hold to do a little more research for the past few months.  My...

Have you ever wondered how a tree produces good fruit and beautiful blossoms?  I have a few rose bushes in my back yard that I have to prepare for winter so they will grow again in the spring.  It's my least favorite thing about fall because I love how tall and beautif...

Usually, when I think of fire, I think of a cozy evening by the warmth of a hearth.  Or when my family goes camping and we light a campfire to roast marshmallows and spend time together.  Better yet, the nights I've spent with my husband and daughter out in our backyar...

One of my favorite Pandora stations to listen to while I write is the Thomas Newman station.  He is my favorite film composer, and has written the score for some of my favorite movies.  The way he puts music together somehow pulls a string on my heart that is so meanin...
